Goldfinger – one of the most popular movies in the James Bond franchise – first hit cinemas way back in September 1964. But 007 fans in Israel had to wait a little longer to enjoy watching its thrilling plot unfold. Indeed, the movie was briefly banned there after the Nazi past of a major cast member came to light.

In fact, Israel refused to screen any films featuring this particular actor at all due to his eight-year membership in the Nazi party. However, things aren’t always as they seem. And the country lifted its ban after news emerged that the actor in question was in fact something of a war hero.
